Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Sierra Nevada Town, Andalucia, Spain your home away from home

Few people think of Spain as a skiing resort, but at over 10,000 feet above sea level, the mountains around Sierra Nevada Town are a great area for winter sports. However, during the dry summer months when the Spanish Costas are sizzling, a rental home in Sierra Nevada Town in the cool mountain air makes good sense too. With spectacular scenery yet within easy reach of the Moorish city of Granada, it is a different way to enjoy all that Andalucia has to offer.

Things to Do in Sierra Nevada Town, Andalucia Winter Sports

During the winter months, the resorts in the Sierra Nevada Mountains get light, dry powder snow, due to the low humidity in the area. This is perfect for alpine skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and other winter sports on the 65km of ski slopes. From the top of the nearby Veleta Peak, skiers have wonderful views to the Mediterranean and the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.

Summer Activities

The Sierra Nevada Mountains and nearby National Parks are ideal for walking and hiking in the summer months. With dramatic scenery and fresh mountain air, this is also the quietest time to enjoy the small towns in the area. Horse riding in the lush green valleys, caving and mountain biking are popular activities around your beautiful holiday home in Sierra Nevada town.

Places to Visit Around Sierra Nevada Town, Andalucia Al Hambra, Granada

This ancient fortified residence with its massive walls and pretty gardens is a short drive from your accommodation in Sierra Nevada Town, through some incredible mountain scenery. Built by the Moors over 1000 years ago, this ancient palace stands high on a cliff face above the river gorge and has magnificent views. The architecture and churches of the city of Granada are also worth exploring.

Sierra de Castril Natural Park

This scenic natural park in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Spain is home to many exotic and rare bird species. A visit to this mountainous land will introduce visitors to the gall oaks and, at higher latitudes, larch pines. Tawny vultures, otters, mountain goats and other wildlife can all be enjoyed on a wildlife excursion.

Costa del Sol

Although you may be enjoying your quiet holiday rental in Sierra Nevada Town, the beaches of the Costa del Sol are just two hours drive away.

Fabulous house with magnificent views over the Alhambra

5 of 5
Five of us stayed here for three nights in late April. We arrived Friday evening and the owner miguel showed us around and explained how everything worked. There was a very welcome supply of basic food. The house contained everything we needed, was clean and we settled in very quickly What we loved about it was the roof terrace with wonderful views over the Alhambra and the garden which provided us with a lovely area to sit in when the sun came out. The house isn't easy to find, our taxi driver struggled. But the area, the Albaycin is a lovely one to stay in full of history and handy shops and bars. We loved it and the town. We did the Alhambra trip which was fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely house, area and city, made for a great break

The property is fantastic property well secluded.

5 of 5
The overall impression is absolutely very good. We have now stayed at 5 different properties in Orgiva, and the last three of them have all been with Oliver. The reason for this is simple, everything work out seamless. Oliver has several properties that can be hired, all of them are absolutely favourable, but for different needs and purposes. All are completely equipped and you are well taken care of from the point you are entering Orgiva. Whenever coming back, we will not look for anything else. Well done Oliver ! Bonny and Kjell
